As you walk into the IQ Glass showroom you will enter 'The Courtyard'. This large square showcases various examples of glass box design and architectural glazing.
The freestanding 'Glass Box' within the courtyard highlights IQ's large sliding doors system, minimal windows®, with the oversized glass panels lining two sides of the building and opening on the corner. These slim framed glass doors have sightlines of only 21mm and are finished with a flush floor level. Here at The Courtyard Showroom, you will be able to feel the ease of movement in these glass panels even at the largest sizes available.
This glass box design also features various options available from the minimal windows system including an opening corner, a pocket door, flush floor finishes, integrated drainage, an external key lock and standard mechanical lock.
Within the Glass Box space is an auto opening roof light from our Glassmotion range and a roof terrace completed with a walk on glass floor and frameless glass balustrades.
The stand-alone 'Steel Box' showcases our very popular Mondrian External range of steel windows and doors. The glass structure is designed with the variety of choice in mind with windows and doors made from thermally broken Corten Steel, Architectural Bronze and Stainless Steel. Various other architectural metal finishes are available to view as well.
To the IQ offices itself, we showcase numerous examples of structural glass box extensions, incorporating aluminium facade systems, bi-folding doors, a modern oriel window box, steel supports, glass beams and glass fins as well as the electrical glass solution Electro Chromic Glass.
Through the IQ offices is the Sky House Design Centre. Here you can also see built examples of our Sieger aluminium window and door systems, switchable privacy glass, heated glass, Mondrian Internal doors and a Vitra Pivot. The Sky House Design Centre also holds the most comprehensive collection of aluminium casement windows, aluminium casement doors, bifold doors and patio doors in the South East.
At the rear of the IQ Group offices is a freestanding room that showcases our exclusive Carminati Skyline System. This timber framed window and door system offers you the slimmest profiles available from a timber door.
The timber framed box showcases the Carminati Skyline sliding door, casement door and ultra slim timber bifolding door. All frames here are made with a solid Oak frame in a natural Oak finish and exposed to the elements to show you just how these systems weather in the british climate.
In the same area is a fantastic example of our Umbris louvre roof solution for outdoor living and shading. The aluminium patio roof design is cantilevered on one side and covers a modern outdoor eating and seating area. The louvres within the roof are fully automated and when closed create a fully watertight roof. This example showcases two different types of drainage and roof support and includes fixed burnt timber louvres.
Attached to the IQ Group offices is the Sky House Design Centre. This two storey showroom includes the showrooms and offices of various companies that all offer services and products to private residential design projects.
These include smart home technologies, flooring and wall cladding, staircase designers, kitchen and bathroom designs and an entire floor dedicated to designer furniture and wardrobe design.
